Fundraiser for Brian and Gwen Connell

On or about January 15th 2014 our brother Brian Connell was admitted to PRHC with what was thought to be the H1n1 virus and Influenza. Brian developed pneumonia in both lungs and ARDS while stay and was placed on life support. Since then Brian has been transported to St Micheal's Hospital in Toronto with hope of a better ventilation to remove the carbon dioxide from his blood and also he has suffer Kidney failure and has been placed on dialysis. St Micheal's recommended that Brian be transferred to Toronto General hospital to be placed on an Ecmo machine which basically recycles his blood and filters it and removed the carbon dioxide and puts the clean blood back into his body. As of today Brian remains in an induced coma to keep him comfortable and so he can heal. As all of you know Brian and Gwen work as a team driving truck and due to this misfortune neither one of them is working and has created financial hardship for them. Gwen is by his side 24/7 and will not leave him and is staying at the hospital with him. Your funding will help with lodging, travel and any other necessities for them in this time of crisis.
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity
